This river, more than any other feature of Costa Rica, has built Costa Rica’s reputation as an an adventure destination. Costa Rica’s reputation as an ecologically conscientious country with awesome unspoiled nature comes mainly from people who have enjoyed this famous rafting trip.

Your adventure begins with an adrenaline-laden ride down one of the worlds most scenic rivers, The Pacuare River (class III-IV) Costa Rica is called by National Geographic “one of the most beautiful rivers of the world,” passing below tumbling waterfalls, impenetrable rainforest and through water that alternates between foamy white and placid green. Let Bill Beard’s add this great river to your itinerary. We use the class III & IV section of the Pacuare that is rated as one of the top five rivers in the world for rafting. Please remember that everyone must paddle.

Experienced River Rafting Guides will carry the rafts, paddles, safety equipment and refreshments to the riverbank where you will be given rafting equipment and basic rafting and safety instructions before you embark on your rafting tour.

Start with gentle white water breaks and work your way through Class III and IV rapids. Safety kayakers accompany rafters for the entire trek. Take a short break and enjoy a little time on land or in the sun with your other rafting companions.
